We've been told all our lives to wash our faces in the morning and before we go to bed. Unless you go to bed with a thick masque on (which you shouldn't be doing anyway!), you don't need to wash your face every morning.
Dermatologist studies have shown that your face doesn't get very dirty at all while sleeping, so a good splash and rinse of water for the wake up is all you need! Apply moisturizer and then your face.
Whooooooo! Set the alarm for a minute later!
